Ingredients 101 | Aloe Vera


Aloe vera (aka the 'wonder plant'), is a short-stemmed shrub that produces two substances, gel and latex. It is cultivated all over the world, largely in the Caribbean and Southern USA.

The Summer's Best Self Tanners

He-Shi One Day Tan

If you don't want to commit to being bronzed all week, He-Shi's One Day Tan (£15.50 is the perfect solution. Designed for both men and women, the face and body tinted bronzing gel provides an immediate glow sans streaks! It has an impressive hydrating formula that glides across the skin easily and - importantly - evenly. There is no stickiness and also no scent.
